In proposing and passing laws, the President and Congress continue to ignore the Constitution and the will of the people. They have concluded they are no longer accountable to the people, but have determined to do the will of their masters, the moneyed elites.
We are fast approaching a time when the American system will either collapse under the weight of big government and money printing, or an incident will prompt an uprising of the people. The Founding Fathers recognized this possibility.
In a letter to William Stephens Smith, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”
Perhaps it’s time to remind them, for as James Madison (as Helvidius) wrote, “If there be a principle that ought not to be questioned within the United States, it is, that every nation has a right to abolish an old government and establish a new one. This principle is not only recorded in every public archive, written in every American heart, and sealed with the blood of a host of American martyrs; but is the only lawful tenure by which the United States hold their existence as a nation.”
